I just couldn't get the Vulcan to flip for me at all. I know I didn't have the arm spped to be chucking a 13 speed disc when I was trying the Vulcan, but had Hoped it was Understable enough to at least flatten out a little. I could bomb Big Hyzers (big for me anyway) but that was about it.
Anyone have any idea how the Vulcan compares to the Nuke SS? Or, I should say, do they compare in your eyes? I know what the charts say, but....... :)
Don't believe all the hype of the Vulcan, Katana or Nuke SS. I have all 3.
If you are already a power thrower it is a good distance flex driver. If you are a 400'+ thrower already it will be a nice turnover driver.
But if you are a good rec player like me it will be difficult to get a good flex distance throw. I keep a Vulcan & Katana in my bag but I use them for head wind drives. With a little wind coming at me I can get them to flex nicely to about 350'. A steady head wind & I can hyzer flip them about 325'
Without wind I am just starting to flex the Vulcan, no dice with the Katana yet. For some reason I just can't get the Nuke SS to do anything but hyzer out.
So unless your already hitting bombs don't expect miracle drives. The hype is they are super fast flex drivers for beginners but in reality they are not.
archon is a "beginner-friendly" wraith, but that doesn't mean it's entirely beginner friendly. my friend who maxes out at 350 couldn't get it to budge much on the high speed turn, which was unexpected, because even a wraith turns some. might be because it was the champ archon, but it's not what i expected to see.
vulcan is supposedly very understable and should be easier to throw, even though it is a speed 13.
I have been throwing the Vulcan since the day it came out. I absolutely love this disc; granted it isn't for everyone. It is very fast, so you have to have enough armspeed to get it up on plane, but it really isn't that hard. It is nose sensative, so you have to have a nice smooth pull with the disc. I hear people complain about it being too flippy, or maybe it would be a good roller. It does like a little hyzer flip, but you have to be smooth, and no, it's a crappy roller.
This disc will indentify your mistakes and make you a smoother player if you let it. If you go blowing in there ripping the crap out of this disc you will be disatisfied.
I have more fogiving discs in my bag, but none are near as long as the Vulcan.
